Spring will be here before we know it, and we’ll begin thinking about opening up our homes and doing a thorough spring cleaning. But where do we start? What are the best methods to get your home sparkling clean and smelling fresh? We’re here to provide you with some tips and tricks to help your spring cleaning process run smoothly.
Create A Spring Cleaning Schedule
To create a spring cleaning schedule, you’ll want to look around your home and assess what you want to be cleaned up before the warm weather arrives. Don’t know where to begin? Well, you can start from the places/rooms you tend to ignore. Once those rooms are clean and tidy, it’s time to move on to the areas of the home that regularly get cleaned. Conversely, some people will start with the worst places and work from there, or start at the top and work down.
If you’re still finding difficulty figuring out where to begin, Squeegee Squad is ready and willing to tackle some of the more challenging tasks, which will free you up to do the other areas more thoroughly. Do you have a back patio that could use a power washing? Are the sticks and leaves still living rent-free in your gutters? If so, Squeegee Squad has highly trained professional crews ready for a gutter cleaning project.
Begin Spring Cleaning By Decluttering
In addition to keeping your home organized, decluttering has positive psychological influences. How? Well, it lets your brain know that your work is far from done. Living in a disorganized home often leads to a heightened stress level. For example; The cluttered desk, the piles of laundry, or the accumulations of dust. These are nearly impossible to ignore, which is why we have to consider the psychological toll such things have on our psyche. So to tackle these problems, it’s essential to create time to:
- Organize the closets
- Organize and dust the surfaces
- Comb through and remove stuff from the junk drawers and flat surfaces that collect mail and random items.
By only doing these few things, we can feel fresh and free of the unnecessary stress of clutter.
Spring Cleaning The Outside of Your Home
The outside of your home can get pretty filthy by spring, which may lead to a necessary wash. An average hose may do the trick, but a professional pressure washing by a highly trained crew such as Squeegee Squad has the tools and know-how to remove the dirt and grime from your home.
Spring Cleaning Includes Window Washing
Window washing is a given that comes along with spring cleaning, but some people don’t realize that both sides of the window need cleaning. At Squeegee Squad, we know how to clean outdoor windows safely and understand that cleaning them from the outside is just as important as the outside.
Spring Cleaning Your Light Fixtures
Light fixtures can get pretty dirty from dust, having windows open, and other contaminants that float in the air. Although some light fixtures can be cleaned with a simple duster, more complex fixtures will likely require professional assistance. Hiring a trained light fixture cleaning crew who knows how to safely clean delicate light fixtures or chandeliers that are too high to reach with a step stool will save you from potentially breaking a light fixture or inflicting harm on yourself.
Spring Clean From Top To Bottom
Whenever we’re planning to spring clean our home, it must be mentioned that all cleaning should ideally be done from top to bottom. When dusting and cleaning, the tiny particles are forced downward, starting at the top prevents us from having to re-clean or re-dust areas already cleaned. The best way to avoid all of this, starting from the top of your room you want to take a vacuum hose and clean the cobwebs, corners, ceiling fans, light fixtures you can reach and then work down from the top. A good tip for ceiling fan cleaning is to take an old pillowcase, put it on the blades one by one, and then pull it off while wiping clean. Once you collect the dust, you can take the pillowcase outside and shake it out away from the house. Next up is dusting the furniture and other items working towards the last step, vacuuming and scrubbing the floors and baseboards. Don’t forget to wipe down walls with a cleaning cloth and hot soapy water. By tackling dirt and dust top to bottom, you’ll save a significant amount of time in the long run.
If you have dust that’s in hard-to-reach places, staying safe and hiring a professional might be the best option. Squeegee Squad can reach and safely clean ceiling fans, chandeliers, or any other light fixtures that prove difficult to clean for everyday people.
Spring Cleaning Gutter Cleaning
Having your gutters cleaned twice a year is important not only for keeping your home looking clean but it is also imperative, so you don’t end up with water damage in your home. Most people get their gutters cleaned in the fall to help prevent ice dams and then again in the spring to get any leaves, dirt, or other gunk out of the gutters so that water doesn’t flow where it shouldn’t and invade your foundation.
Considering the information above, there’s plenty of ways to tackle the tricky task of spring cleaning. Thankfully, Squeegee Squad has highly trained professional crews to help you do exactly that.
